Just Rest Here




“Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.  
Just rest.
For your
separation from God
is the hardest work in the world.”

~ Hafiz


Have you ever had a time in your life when you have been “ambushed” by feelings — your experience takes you away for a time and there is no control with what you are feeling — it’s got you?  This kind of an experience can be either negative or positive.

Just recently there was a negative memory in my life that came up and ambushed me.  Initially, it was quite scary.  There was nothing I could do to calm the experience down or avoid it.  

In my spiritual practice, I know to be still and fully accept whatever is coming up as it is.  That doesn’t mean I wasn’t seeing and experiencing all the dynamics of what was coming up, but at the same time, I sensed a Loving Presence tenderly and deeply embracing me.  I had a choice in that moment … to get caught up in the current of the emotions … or lean into this Loving Embrace.   

I am sure we all have had these times to work through.  Either positive or negative, our spiritual work is in surrendering it all into the Stillness of God’s Love.  Then, we can move on from this wise and Loving Presence.
